I'm looking for a circa 2007 range tank guide. I've been searching on google but haven't found anything made in that time period so I've come to Zybez to see if you guys can point me in the right direction.

Thanks.

Well, from what I can think of if you just want a PK'ing account there isn't too much you really need.

For quests all you really need are animal magnetism, for the ava's accumulator, recipe for disaster for the barrows gloves, lunar diplomacy for vengeance, and possibly horror from the deep for the unholy book. I guess if you really want it, you could do roving elves for the crystal bow, and desert treasure is included in the requirements for barrows gloves I believe, which gives ancient magicks.
Other then that, I believe the common gear is something along the lines of Karil's or black d'hide, and a DFS or possibly an unholy book.
You can also switch it up, using things like Torag's legs and helm with a range body for higher defensive boosts.

Thanks for that! What do the offensive stats look like? Attack, Strength? What about Prayer?

Well, you only need 44 prayer for eagle eye, and if you want you could get smite at 52 prayer but it'll give you an extra combat level or two.
Attack/Strength should be kept under 148 added together, that way at 99 range you are still a ranged based account (meaning your range is determining your combat level, not your melee stats).

It may be a good idea to stay 70 atk and str so you could do some libum1 type range->dharoking. Basically, bring an msb or karils bow and when your opponent is low smack em with your axe. You would be amazed how well that actually works lol.

I was actually interested in something like this as well. Sadly, I am a complete newbie. I find some of those things difficult to get. I was more curious about low level tanking. What kind of stats should I get?

These are my current stats:
  • Attack - 40 (Keeping this until I feel like getting 60.)
  • Strength - 40 (Keeping this until I feel like improving.)
  • Defense - 25 (Didn't know what I should get.)
  • Range - 10 (LOL just started to train it. Goal is 80)
So what do you suggest I do? Thanks for all that reply.

I had a tank back in the days. I don't remember all of the quests I did or what you should do, but this is what I had:

70 attack
75 strength
99 defense
99 hitpoints
99 ranged
52 prayer
99 magic

105 combat

I did RFD, DT, got all Lunar magic, and that's all you really need for a tank, I think. I pked in a Neitznot helm, glory, black dhide body, rune/Torag's legs, accumulator, rune c'bow, diamond (e) bolts, a DFS, and snakeskin boots most of the time. I admittedly never hybridded much at all. It probably isn't the best setup, but it worked for me.
